Hi I'm Alan
I live in Kansas, USA. I'm a Mormon.
I am a dad and a grandpa. I have lived in Kansas most all my life. I work for the US Army as a civilian employee.
Why I am a Mormon
I became a Mormon when I was sixteen years old after reading the Book of Mormon and finding its teachings valuable. It led me to Christ. It is a book of great value to me. I feel the Holy Spirit when I live by its teachings and those of the New Testament gospels.
How I live my faith
We study the scriptures every day as a family and meet together for gospel study and fun on Monday evenings. I try to be a good citizen of my nation and community. I was asked to assist our Stake President (leader of several Mormon congregations in the area) to succeed in ministering to the needs of the people of the church in this area. I do this by making appointments for people needing to see him and by helping plan area Church conferences a few times a year. My son and I visit a few families in our congregation every month to minister to them. I try to be a good Christian. It isn't always easy, but God is very merciful and I keep trying.
